How A Property Inspection Can Save You Thousands
When it comes to purchasing a home, it is a significant investment whether it’s your first home or your tenth. So, it’s only natural to want to ensure that you are purchasing something that will provide you with the best value for your investment, and not something that is going to costs you thousands in the immediate future.
According to Australian Consumer Law, you are only covered for purchases of up to $40,000, so when you buy a home, you’re taking a risk, and doing so with the hope that you aren’t buying into a money pit. However, there is a way to help minimise your buying risk, and that is to invest in pre-purchase building inspection.
A pre-purchase building inspection sees a professional building inspector come out and inspect your potential property for defects, both major and minor. From here these findings are presented to you in a detailed building inspection report which will detail the severity of the defects, where they are in the home, and a list of trusted trades that can help you make amendments should you choose to move forward with the purchase.
At Premium Pre-Purchase Building Inspections, we have been helping the residents of Melbourne make a smart investment decision with our pre-purchase building inspection services. To see how a professional building inspection can save you money, and protect you against purchasing a dud, keep reading:
Make An Informed Decision
No matter how much you love a property, you should never make an irrational purchasing decision when it comes to buying a house. A pre-purchase building inspection will present you with a detailed list of all of the defects, both major and minor. You can also call trades and enquire about the cost to fix certain things, which may influence your buying choice moving forward. From here you will be able to decide whether the property you’re interested in is worth your precious investment!
Bargain, Bargain, Bargain!
A pre-purchase building inspection will allow you to asses the defects present in a property, inquire about the cost to fix them and adjust your offer to suit. It may not work all the time (homeowners are often stubborn when it comes to the value of their home), but it very well could, and see you achieve the house of dreams at an even better price!
